glxinfo | grep 'Video memory'

I do not need much video memory. How to reduce the size of video
memory? (for me it is much more valuable to have more RAM)

Option in/etc/X11/xorg.conf
VideoRam 32768 it does not affect the allocated memory.
BIOS also does not include any adjustments to allocate video memory.
